The transactions special interest group (SIG-transaction) are a group of people interested in transactions in distributed databases. We have a focus on transactions in TiKV and TiKV clients (including TiDB, which use TiKV go-client), but discuss academic work and other implementations too.

SIG activites

  • talks on distributed transactions,
  • a reading group for academic papers,
  • discussion of transaction research and implementations on Slack,
  • help understanding and configuring transactions in TiKV and TiDB,
  • support for contributors to TiKV and related projects.
